Please read Section 2.2 "Installation" of the Limma User's Guide.

The second paragraph of http://www.bioconductor.org/whatisit will 
tell you a little about the Bioconductor release cycle.

>Issue with read.maimages, wt.fun no longer works.

It works fine for me in limma 2.4.7. Others with whom I've checked 
are also having no problems.

Thank you for taking the trouble to write in. But reports are only 
useful if you give example code sufficient to reproduce the problem. 
In most cases apparent bugs are actually user errors, and giving the 
code will allow us to tell you how to avoid the problem.

You also need to specify your operating system and R version. 
sessionInfo() is any easy way to show versions of R and attached 
packages. See the posting guide at
